DIY Solar Modules
While solar power was once available only to the well connected, it has since become an affordable energy solution for just about everyone. From reducing monthly electricity costs to increasing home values, installing a solar PV system yourself is very beneficial. Solar PV kits, however, can still result in sticker shock, and the quality of off-the-shelf solar packages found online or in big box stores is debatable.

Headquartered in Wisconsin, our team specializes in the sale of solar modules at distributor prices. We strive to help customers select the right solar PV system for their application, while also providing information about how to save money doing it.
